What’s Too “Friendly” for an IBCLC on Social Media?
USA Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA

Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA, is a lawyer/litigator (since 1983) and private practice IBCLC lactation consultant (since 1997). Healthcare providers (HCPs) face moral and legal challenges in their clinical care, every day. Liz explains (with plain language and humor) how lactation advocacy, ethics, and the law overlap, in all geographic and work settings. She offers immediate, pragmatic tips so HCPs can practice ethically, legally, and confidently. She is an Adjunct Professor in Drexel University's Human Lactation Consultation Program, recently served as the President of the International Lactation Consultant Association (ILCA), and as a Director of the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC), and is a current Director of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). She wrote the only textbook focusing on IBCLC ethics and legal issues and authored chapters on similar topics in several other texts. She is a well-received writer and lecturer in her field.


Objective 1: Identify two mandatory practice-guiding documents the IBCLC must follow, and one voluntary practice-guiding document the IBCLC should follow

Objective 2: Explain the difference between sharing electronic health records online, and using social media for clinical information

Objective 3: Describe three ways that social media use for lactation support can compromise patient/client care for the clinician

Objective 4: Define three ways to provide education and information on-line, while protecting patient/client privacy

USA Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA
Abstract:

It's all about the Internet! Families in 2015 want to be connected to their network of families and friends. They use Internet-accessing devices and social media to share news, gather information and seek opinions. If this is where families are ... can an IBCLC (or other healthcare provider) be there, too, without violating long-standing principles of privacy and professional ethics? Can healthcare providers engage in clinical discussion with someone on Facebook, Twitter, a chat room or a website? What about real-time webinars, or static websites, where mothers type in their clinical questions? Is texting ever permissible? Can a clinician post a picture of a client, or ask colleagues on a private listserv about a tricky case? We'll learn how the Internet is used by new families to seek and share information, and the professional risks of "friendly" clinical care by the IBCLC or HCP who joins the conversation.

Avoid Lawsuits and Pink Slips! Legal and Ethical Issues for the IBCLC
USA Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA

Objective 1: Identify two mandatory practice-guiding documents the IBCLC must follow, and one voluntary practice-guiding document the IBCLC should follow

Objective 2: Show how IBCLCs have a duty to the mother, to the baby, and to the breastfeeding relationship

Objective 3: Define the difference between an expert witness and a fact witness in a court case involving a lactating woman

Objective 4: Describe how the use of social media for lactation support can compromise patient care, and identify one technique to correct it

USA Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA
Abstract:

This presentation is a first of its kind: a "survey course" of legal and ethical tensions unique to the IBCLC. Regardless of one’s other professional licenses or credentials, there are four primary practice-guiding documents for the IBCLC. After a review of those “rules of the road,” we’ll navigate a simple algorithm the IBCLC can use to determine what she could, should or must do, in any situation that sets off ethical red flags in the IBCLC’s mind. Then, we’ll hit highlights of legal and ethical issues for the IBCLC: certification vs. licensure vs. certificates-for-classes-and-courses; who is the patient/client?; conflicts of interest (and tensions from “wearing many hats”); intellectual property law; the (WHO) International Code; the IBCLC in the courtroom (as expert or witness); the IBCLC on the Internet; the IBCLC as breastfeeding advocate, and its corollary: the IBCLC as advocate for a breastfeeding mother.

Cultural Competence or Cultural Humility? A Roadmap for Lactation Specialists
U.S.A. Cynthia Good Mojab, MS, LMHCA, IBCLC

Cynthia Good Mojab, MS Clinical Psychology, is a Clinical Counselor, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, author, researcher, and internationally recognized speaker. She is also Certified in Acute Traumatic Stress Management. As one of a small group of mental health care providers in the world who are also IBCLCs, she has a strong interest in lactational psychology. She is the Director of LifeCircle Counseling and Consulting, LLC where she focuses on perinatal mental health care. She serves as Education Manager at the International Lactation Consultant Association, formerly served as Research Associate in the Publications Department of La Leche League International, and was on the faculty of Parkland College. She has authored, contributed to, and provided editorial review of numerous publications related to breastfeeding, culture, and psychology. She brings the evidence and insights of psychology and lactation consulting to her presentations to help participants better understand and more effectively respond to the complex psychosocial realities of breastfeeding families living in diverse contexts.

Objective 1:Define cultural competence and cultural humility.

Objective 2: Compare and contrast cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, cultural skills, cultural encounters, and cultural desire.

Objective 3: List three guideposts for the journey of developing cultural humility.

U.S.A. Cynthia Good Mojab, MS, LMHCA, IBCLC
Abstract:

Culture is an integral part of all encounters with breastfeeding families—whether the lactation specialist’s and the family’s cultural backgrounds are similar or dissimilar. Cultural competence is explicitly or implicitly mandated or recommended in codes of ethics, position statements, and legislation related to a variety of fields, including those that involve the provision of breastfeeding support. For example, IBCLCs are ethically required to provide culturally appropriate care. In spite of the mandate for cultural competence, there is a dearth of information in the field of breastfeeding support regarding its development. This session reviews the ethical call for the development of cultural competence. Five areas of cultural competence—including cultural awareness, knowledge, skill, encounters, and desire—are presented and contrasted with cultural humility. This session also offers 10 “guideposts” for lactation specialists to explore on the non-linear, lifelong, transformative journey of cultural humility.
